    my guess here is that the guy just made a dumb mistake.
    good lesson for all of us.
    1. our spouses must know what to do
    2. have a flashlight or turn the lights on when clearing a dark house!
    3. know who the ___ you are shooting at!!!

    guy who lives two doors down from me did this same thing about two years ago...

    I awoke to the sound of the careflight helicopter

    a refrigerator magnet fell of the fridge - made a noise - he went to investigate... wound up shooting his wife (of 30+years) in the chest...

    according to both of them- she was still in bed when he went looking...

    he called fro help right away - she lived

    btw they are still "happily" married

    #1. Check for wife...
    #2. Use a light...
    #3. Get dog to like wife...

    I'm confused about the dog barking at the wife. My Rhodesian 'eyes' strangers walking by...alerts the house quickly. However, if my wife drives up, he knows the sound of the vehicle, the sound of the key in the lock, he even knows us in the dark...WHY, was he barking at the wife? Strange!

    Stay armed...know your target...stay safe!

    If I know there is a BG then absolutely, I stay and defend the bedroom.

    If I do not... then I go clear the house.

    I'm not in the practice of calling the police for every tree branch that falls and hits the side of the house, every time my cat knocks over a dish, etc.

    Definately a lack of common sense.

    As far as shooting without ID'ing first. That's more common than you think.
    It's the main reason I won't go hunting on public lands.
    There are some people that would shoot a deer wearing a tie-dye shirt.

    My wife will never carry a gun: it is simply not in her nature. She leaves that to me. I have gone over various plans of what I expect my wife to do, and what she can expect I will be doing when we are in the home, in the car, on the street, etc.. That would be something I would suggest everyone do.

    Knee-jerk action and look at the consequences. Surely a flashlight would in itself have prevented this tho - always easy to armchair any situation.

    I shudder just thinking about this.
    i also was thinking (flashlight) he must have shot instantly.

    I don't buy this story. How many of us here can easily recognize our wife's silhouette even in the dark? I know how my wifes hair sits, I know her profile, I know how she dresses even in bed and I can easily recognize my wife, yes, even in the dark. Also how big is this house? If this guy didn't look for his wife in bed to see if she was there or not before clearing his home, then he was dead wrong to clear the home not knowing whether his wife was in bed or not. If she was in bed when he left to clear the house, then she got up and went to the kitchen while he was going through the home, how did he not see or hear her get out of bed, and walk to the kitchen? Did she move to the kitchen tactically? When he saw someone in the kitchen, did he not call out that he had a gun, or did he just see a silhouette in the dark, and then just start shooting? Something not right about this one.
    Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

    Gotta lite? (WHO CLEARS THEIR HOUSE WITHOUT A FLASHLIGHT???!?!?)

    Did they have any kids? I sure hope not... This stupid moron should NOT get them. IMHO

    I said the same thing. Wouldn't a man recognize his wife, even in the dark? If he saw clearly enough to hit her in the chest, clearly he could see her silohette(sp)?

    Wow, I posted my last post before I read this, almost matched mine.

    I'm suspicous
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    It says that they awoke to their dog barking and he went to investigate and took his gun. My question is since she seems to have been awake and knew what he was doing why would she leave the bedroom and go into the kitchen without notifying him that she is on the move?
